A.A. Ammons. Garbage. 1993. 121 pp.

There are individual flashes of something more interesting that stand out from the undistinguished, garrulous whole. The work is definitely less than the sum of its parts. It's not quite funny enough to make the Rilkean parody work, nor serioius enough to be a Rilkean peaon in its own right.
